Buyer for Mom’s Condo!

3/20/13 Wednesday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)

There were voice mail messages on my phone this morning, from our Realtor’s office: We have a buyer who wants our answer by today. I and 4 other siblings own it, so there is a bit more to replying than if it were only myself. I spent the morning fielding phone calls and emails, finally sending the signed agreement after lunch. There are some glitches on the horizon, so please keep us in your thoughts that they can be worked out.

John rearranged his desk corner (since we left my recliner with his sister, thus getting more space there). We set the printer on the floor and lamp at his desk. Nice! He also called “Silver Leaf”, getting help so his software that lets him know how our RV engine is doing. It works fine now. Good to have done before our next trip.

We enjoyed a delightful conversation with our other son, Joe.  Next we got our grocery shopping accomplished. John got our new outside water filter working while I did more communicating regarding mom’s condo. Later I needed to get more documents signed, scanned and emailed to my Realtor. So far, so good.

John suggested a walk after supper.  Perfect – it’s so lovely here when the sun is setting and I need to stretch my legs after all the business focus of today.  Once back home John played with his Excell spreadsheets while I worked on the blog.

It kind of was like Camelot here: last night it stormed (thunder, lightening, hail, heavy rain at 2 am and 4 am).  This morning was wet and cool but by afternoon it was a beautiful 75 degrees.  May lovely days come to everyone now that it’s officially Spring – we’ve had enough winter!


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
